An Integrated Data Management System is required for representing and managing indicative information from multiple sources describing the state of an enterprise. In such environments, information may be partially known because the related information from the real world corresponds to a set of possible values including the unknown. Here, we present a way to replace unknown values using background knowledge of data that is often available arising from a concept hierarchy, as integrity constraints, from database integration, or from knowledge possessed by domain experts. We present and examine the case of H-IFS to represent support contained in subsets of the domain as a candidate for replacing unknown values mostly referred in the literature as NULL values.
